I notice that it was this day last year that the camels back got broken over Radio Userland instability.
A year later I am pretty happy with the decision I made to write my own blogging tool. It's far from perfect but it is usable and it satisfied all my criteria. I really haven't had the time to spend on it that I would have liked so development has been pretty slow beyond basic functionality.
Going forward I want to use it as a platform to keep experimenting with the medium especially in the area of tagging. I still think there's lots of interesting things to do there. Squib is also a good way for me to keep track of Rails which is something of a moving target. Having to keep Squib up to date is a good motivator.
